No what you want but looks to me handy for your case: deborphan
Quoting the man page:
deborphan finds packages that have no packages depending
on them. The default operation is to search only within
the libs and oldlibs sections, to hunt down unused
If it is invoked with an optional list of packages, only
the dependencies on those packages will be checked. The
results are printed to stdout as if the option --show-deps
had been given. Searching for specific packages will show
the package, regardless of its priority. It is possible to
specify -, to read a list of packages from standard input.
